Members of the North American Machinery Manufacturers (NAMM) plan to file a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission seeking relief from increased imports of plastics injection molding machines. The group contends that a surge in imports of Asian injection molding machines, in part brought on by the region’s financial crisis of the past few years, has destabilized the domestic market. Under section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974, domestic industry can receive relief from increased quantities of imports for a period up to four years.
